OUR COMMITMENT TO THE FUTURE.
Hire the perception that the exploration carried out in the Amazon only aims at the financial return without taking into account the degree of environmental degradation of the forest MANOA opted for the sustainability of the resources offered by the forest.
After 47 years of history, we can say that it is possible to increase, innovate and overcome barriers based on a work policy that benefits man and the environment.
this is how we, from the Triângulo Group, seek to perpetuate our enterprise, conquer new markets and technological development, always walking together with the sustainability of our forests.
OUR SUSTAINABILITY PILLARS
OUR FOREST, MANOA.
MANOA started in 1983, when Triângulo Pisos e Panels acquired 74 thousand hectares of forests in Cujubim, Rondônia.
It took years of research to develop suitable methods for forest management.
For 3 years, local forestry operators were selected and trained in the practice of a new work methodology, with a focus on sustainability.
Between the acquisition of the area in 1983 and the start of operations in 1997, it took 14 years to obtain more knowledge about the forest and its impact on the community.
In 2005 this effort was recognized by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) internationally renowned forest certification.
SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT
With a view to sustainable economic growth, respecting the environment, its employees and communities, MANOA Florestal was one of the first companies to adopt reduced impact forest management in Brazil.
Sustainable forest management is to consciously explore the forest. IBAMA approves the removal of trees in limited numbers, after a long study of the inventory of the area to be explored, in addition to several other factors.
For a tree to be removed from the forest, there needs to be a thorough analysis of it: age, impact to other trees in its surroundings, whether it has seed, bird’s nest, etc.
In 1994, the company’s Sustainable Forest Management Plan was approved, including innovative practices to reduce environmental impact.
In this way, a new exploration concept was implemented, in which techniques are applied that minimize the effect of interventions in the forest and increase the efficiency of operations and the productivity of management.
In the forest system adopted by MANOA (polycyclic) the rotation is divided into intervals called “cutting cycles”.
SAFETY AND PRESERVATION
MANOA’s forest area is adjacent to public areas, with Nacionais do Jamari, Jacundá and Reserva Samuel, forming a large forest block of approximately 480 thousand hectares. The maintenance of this block is important for the conservation of the most diverse species of fauna and flora in the state of Rondônia and also in the Brazilian Amazon. On the map, we see how much legally unprotected areas can be deforested with the Manoa Forest
Our forest – Manoa – has a great eternity and aulia in the reduction of atmospheric pollution.
Every year, more than 279,290 tCO2eq are required to be emitted, helping to improve air quality and consequently health and climate.
REED + Manoa Project
Beyond the Triangle Group
Manoa, in partnership with the REDD + project carried out by Biofílica, is the source of access for other Brazilian companies to be able to neutralize their emissions of gases in the atmosphere and commit themselves to the causes of sustainability.
The company that neutralizes its emissions with REDD + Projects not only directly combat climate change, but also prevent deforestation in the Amazon Forest, preserve biodiversity and support local socioeconomic development.

INTERNATIONAL CERTIFICATIONS AND RECOGNITION
MANOA follows strict international standards and precepts on quality and sustainability.
The certifications attest to all the work involved to guarantee the origin of the wood and the true commitment to maintaining sustainable management as the main pillar of actions in the forest.
International bodies recognize MANOA as an example of actions to be followed in the environmental field.
Greenguard Gold is the top category of this certification, which informs products that are considered healthy, including for school and hospital environments. They are products that help to reduce indoor air pollution and the possibility of exposure to chemicals in the atmosphere
Certification for being exempt from formaldehyde emission. Required in developed countries because it is highly carcinogenic, formaldehyde remains with the product ending for more than 20 years. Triangle products are exempt from this substance.
The Lacey Act establishes a series of conditions for the entry of foreign timber into the United States by prohibiting illegal timber products.
“Indústria de Madeiras Manoa owns 75,182 hectares (ha) of land in the municipality of Cujubim, in the state of Rondônia, in the Brazilian Amazon. Since 2005, 73,079ha have been certified by the Florest Stewardship Council (FSC).
Manoa is a pioneer in sustainable forest management in Brazil and the first to obtain FSC certification in Rondônia.
Manoa is owned by Grupo Triângulo (www.triangulo.com.br)
The forest certification seal is released by certifiers constantly monitored by the FSC and aims to ensure that the wood comes from a productive process managed according to an ecologically adequate, socially just, economically viable management and in compliance with current laws.
SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL PROJECTS
The community around the Manoa forest gained cultural and educational incentives with the construction of a school, day care center and APAE in the city of Cujubim.
Other actions, such as forestry education, are also provided to the local community.
Grupo Triângulo built an early childhood education school in Cujubim, Rondônia. The Raio de Luz nursery serves more than 200 children in the municipality.
To educate the community, professionals and students from all over the country, a Forestry Studies Center was built in the Manoa forest. The awareness of forest management reflects good practices and combats illegality in the timber market.
The Triângulo Group supports the local culture of Cujubim, helping with funds, materials and spaces for leisure, art and sports in the city.
Reforestation, as well as sustainable forest management, does not harm the environment and also contributes to maintaining the climate, animals and other plant species.
Triângulo Empreendimentos florestais is a forestry producer belonging to the Triângulo group.
We have over 30 years of experience in sustainable reforestation, which proudly provided us with the certification that attests to our commitment to the environment and all biodiversity, from planting to cutting.
Developing the production chain in a sustainable way is one of the ways to contribute to the country’s future generations.
Every day, the industry needs raw material from wood. Pinus is a versatile tree, which is widely used in various sectors that include our daily lives and supply the needs of millions of people.
Respect for the environment;
Develop and improve techniques that impact as little as possible;
Preservation of the native environment, both fauna and flora;
Plan and implement plantations always under the Sustainable management regime.
There are 4,400 hectares including conserved native forest and forest plantations.
All farm waste is recycled.
Throughout the area, flora and fauna is preserved.
